LaMar’s Donuts asks customers to pay more to fund worker bonuses, cover rising supply costs

LaMar's Donuts will be increasing their prices by 20% or more in order to fund a new bonus program, potentially higher wages for employees and increased supply costs. The change comes after a four-person employee walkout occurred last weekend due to the workers saying they were under appreciated, underpaid and overworked. Image via LaMar's Donuts.

LaMar’s Donuts says it will increase prices by 20% or more to cover not only rising supply costs but also increased compensation for its workers just days after an employee walkout in Overland Park.

Four employees at the LaMar’s franchise on College Boulevard walked out mid-shift last Saturday, leaving behind a sign saying they were “under appreciated, underpaid and overworked.”
